Description Sediment samples from seven sites in the Spokane River drainage and a reference sample from a nearby lake were subjected to chemical analysis and laboratory toxicity tests. The chemicals analyzed included zinc, cadmium, lead, and other metals; semivolatile organic compounds; PCBs; and pesticides (selected samples only). The toxicity tests included bioassays with Microtox (pore water), the midge Chironomus tentans, and the amphipod Hyalella azteca.
